Create a spinning toy that’s a groovy flash of color and pattern.
Glue two pieces of Crayola Black Color Explosion™ Paper back to back. Place something heavy, like a telephone directory, on them while they dry.
With Crayola Black Color Explosion™ Markers, draw a large circle on the double page. Cut out the shape. Decorate both sides of the circle. Try to imagine how the patterns will look as the disk spins slowly—and then faster and faster. Highlight your designs with Glitter Glue. Air-dry the sparkles.
Makes a few slits, straight or curved, from the outer edge of the disk toward the center. Keep slits parallel and do not cut too close to the center or your strips will spin right off.
With the help of an adult, poke two holes close together in the center of the circle. Thread a long piece of string or even elastic through one hole and out the other. Tie ends together. Next thread another piece of yarn the same length the other way. You
Holding each string in one hand, ask an adult or friend to twist the paper disk in one direction. Pull the strings taut, let loose of the spinner, and watch your disk whirl! See the beautiful patterns you made—spinning at top speed.
For even more excitement, bend some of the strips to create undulating moves. Experiment with the possibilities!
